Stronger Through Christ: A Mother's Memoir by Ami Dark-Rosen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Ami Dark-Rosen believes every person has a story to tell and she tells her own in "Stronger Through Christ: A Mother's Memoir". Ami who was diagnosed with childhood diabetes tells her story of growing up 'different' and the hardships she faced then and all through her life. Some 'hardships' (mainly health related) seeming to be a snowball effect that she thinks was started when she was a child and not taking care of herself and believed they were temporary. Most were not but despite all that has happened to her, she is blessed. With the love of her friends and family plus her strong Christian faith she has come through it without giving up.
Not only was Ami faced with health issues time after time but she was faced with being a young married women who wanted a family yet knew her body couldn't take a pregnancy. Later on in her life she was faced with a troubled marriage despite counseling she felt that her husband was growing apart and she questioned his loyalty to her. She also is encountering a society that 'sees' a wheelchair but not the person in it. They fail to see that just because someone is in a wheelchair does not mean they are any less of a person, wife or mother.
I recommend anyone who is having health issues or is questioning 'why me' and wondering where Christ is and why he is letting these bad things happen to them to read this inspiring story.
